"Network error: No route to host" While connecting guest RHEL4 using putty


I have installed RHEL4 using vmware workstation..

Host OS: Windows XP
Guest OS: RHEL4

Pls refer step 17 & 18 in below link...
ORACLE-BASE - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and Centos 4 Installation

1) If i choose to assign IP automatically (using DHCP) means, i am able to connect RHEL4 from my windows through putty successfully..

[root@localhost ~]# ifconfig -a |grep "inet addr"
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:

2) But if i assign the IP address manually, i am getting "Network error: No route to host" error when i connect RHEL4 from my windows through putty..

[root@localhost ~]# ifconfig -a |grep "inet addr"
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:

Also pls let me know, if i choose IP and hostname manually, what should be the values of
1) Gateway
2) Primary DNS

in miscellaneous settings...

Pls help....

Try assigning an IP address in the same subnet! Looks like your manual command uses 192.168.1 as compared to ....8 in the DHCP approach.

Thanks for ur reply RudiC ....

I will try with assigning IP like ''... But if i assign the IP address manually, it asks to enter the values of 'Gateway & Primary DNS' in miscellaneous settings (i.e., in step 19 in ORACLE-BASE - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and Centos 4 Installation)... Pls let me know what should be the values i need to enter...

What are the entries when automatically assigned via DHCP? Use those if possible. DNS-servers you also can find in e.g. router's settings, or in your windows config.
